Metra makes minor changes to Rock Island schedule

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Metra announced they have made minor changes to their Rock Island line schedule in order to improve timeliness and efficiency.

According to a release from Metra, on the weekday inbound schedule, the schedules for 16 trains are being adjusted, with the departure times from certain stops or running times between stations being modified by up to five minutes.

The schedules for some trains are also being adjusted to eliminate conflicts with other trains in the Blue Island area. 

For the outbound trains, the schedules of 19 trains are being adjusted. In almost every case, the changes are being made to reflect actual conditions and the changes amount to no more than three minutes earlier or later. Two late evening trains are being adjusted by 7 minutes to reflect heavy passenger loading following Chicago White Sox games.

On weekends, inbound trains will leave 5 minutes earlier than usual. Outbound trains will arrive 5 minutes later at Joliet.

The changes will go into effect on Sunday, June 15. The last time the Rock Island schedule was adjusted was in 2011.
